    Richard Forthrast created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

    The town psychiatrist has decided to switch everybody in Pine Cove, California, from their normal antidepressants to placebos, so naturally - well, to be accurate, artificially - business is booming at the local blues bar. Trouble is, those lonely slide-guitar notes have also attracted a colossal sea beast named Steve with, shall we say, a thing for explosive oil tanker trucks.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    This book was really great.. I listened to this book again just because I thought it was so funny. The characters and dialogue were amazing. I also found it unique and enlightening. Good Times.. It is a nice break from the serious book I typically read.

    Oslo in November. The first snow of the season has fallen. A boy named Jonas wakes in the night to find his mother gone. Out his window, in the cold moonlight, he sees the snowman that inexplicably appeared in the yard earlier in the day. Around its neck is his mother’s pink scarf. Hole suspects a link between a menacing letter he’s received and the disappearance of Jonas’s mother - and of perhaps a dozen other women, all of whom went missing on the day of a first snowfall. As his investigation deepens, something else emerges: he is becoming a pawn....

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Story

    Rational Egotism, although this may be an interesting book kind of. Freedom for women through submission? "The only evil is the refusal to think." Wow philosophic drivel each conversation is a diatribe to her personal thoughts and feelings, not even subtle to be open for interruption or consideration. Soap box after soap box, leaves me lathered in boredom. What is the difference between this and fountain head? Nothing!! Except the brevity of Fountainhead? ha ha. Boo, is too strong how about MOO!!!
    Good: Excellent observations and writing skill is amazing. The name of this and the other are unique.

    Featuring David Sedaris's unique blend of hilarity and heart, this new collection of keen-eyed animal-themed tales is an utter delight. Though the characters may not be human, the situations in these stories bear an uncanny resemblance to the insanity of everyday life.

    Patricia says: "Enjoyable Book"

    Overall

    I usually love David Sedaris, but this was a little weird dark. I do have to admit I really enjoyed the perspective from animals. I also liked the other narrators. Howeve , I would not waste a credit on it.

    One of the 20th century's most challenging novels of ideas, The Fountainhead champions the cause of individualism through the story of a gifted young architect who defies the tyranny of conventional public opinion. The struggle for personal integrity in a world that values conformity above creativity is powerfully illustrated through three characters: Howard Roarke, a genius; Gail Wynand, a newspaper mogul and self-made millionaire; and Dominique Francon, a devastating beauty.

    Overall

    WoW!!! I was shocked at the fowling and acclaim this book had???So I decide to pursue it.
    Sure man is crap and wonderful all in the same hand. I???m underwhelmed with the content.. Nothing can hold value expect for the great structures man has created.. Socialism, individualism, freedom and collectivism ??? Blah, and a Niche disclaimer at the beginning. Atheism, and not even original in the approach. Well written.
    Listen, however so when some speaks to its greatness, you may understand them better.
